Are There Lashes That Last 2 Weeks?
Sure, your salon lashes will last a few weeks before you need to drag yourself back to the salon and spend another hour (or longer) of your time for an expensive fill, but if you’re ready to break up with your lash tech for good, you’ve got options.
Yes, it’s possible to get lashes that last longer than a minute without spending your vacation funds or vacation days at the lash salon. You can get great-looking, salon-quality lashes at home with the Lashify™ DIY Lash Extension™ System.
Together, we’ll talk about what it is, how it works, and why it’s a better option than strip lashes or any other type of falsies you may have tried before. Get ready to send that breakup text because you’re about to Be Your Own Lash Tech™ for good.
What Are My Lash Options?
There’s more to lash enhancement than just pricey salon extensions. The good news is that new technology has advanced at-home lash extensions so they last longer, look more natural, and are even healthier for your natural lashes. The bad news: you just haven’t met them yet.
Most of us start our at-home eyelash extension journey with the OG of at-home false eyelashes: the strip lash. These extensions are notorious for not looking natural, being difficult to apply, and coming loose at the most inopportune times. Hard pass. Don’t worry; there are numerous other options.
The first time you hear about magnetic lashes, you’ll probably be shaking your head. How? Why? It’s not that complicated. Magnetic lashes work like strip lashes but with a magnetic eyeliner adhesive as opposed to lash glue or other lash adhesive.
Using a liquid eyeliner that contains iron oxides, you’ll draw a line close to your natural lash line and then snap the set of lashes to the eyeliner using tiny magnets attached to the lash band. These lashes aren’t made to be worn for more than a few hours (no overnight wear), and it’s important to realize that application can be tricky if you aren’t a pro with liquid eyeliner.
These types of lashes are often heavier on the lid than some people like. Bottom line: These aren't the solution if you don’t want to deal with liquid eyeliner and want lashes that last longer than a few hours.
A Lash Lift
Getting curly lashes that last is possible without an eyelash curler. A lash lift is essentially a perm for your eyelashes. At a salon, your eyelashes will be curled over a small cylinder while a curling solution is applied to your individual lashes.
A lash lift can last about three to four weeks and make your eyes appear more open, but it won’t lengthen your lashes or make them appear thicker. While it gives a truly natural look, if you want more volume and length, you’ll need a different type of lash enhancement.
Like individual eyelash extensions, cluster lashes are applied to each lash — with a twist. A cluster lash has several lash fibers bound together and attached to the individual lash or as close to the lash line as possible.
To attach, you’ll use a lash glue or lash adhesive. Cluster lashes work to help you fill in areas of sparse lashes, adding volume more naturally than you can with a strip of false lashes. Because cluster lashes are applied at a ratio of multiple lash fibers to one natural lash, they can sometimes be heavy.
Depending on the brand you choose and how they are applied, you may be able to wear cluster lashes longer than traditional strip lashes. Remember that if you plan to apply them to your natural lashes yourself, you’ll need some practice.
Applying cluster lashes to your natural lash fibers can be difficult, and getting glue in your eyes is always a risk. Although these options might work for you, there’s a way to get long-lasting lashes that are easy to apply and every bit as beautiful as salon lashes. The solution is Lashify.
Lashify: Lash Style That Lasts
We created the Lashify system because we noticed a huge gap in the at-home, semi-permanent lash market. Sure, you could enhance your lashes at home, but the options weren’t designed for long-term wear, and they definitely didn’t look like the salon lash extensions we were used to.
The Lashify DIY Lash Extension changed the game. Everything about our system is different, including our lashes.
Our lashes had to be cruelty-free, so we opted for 100% Korean PBT silk that looks and feels like mink but without the animal involvement. Despite packaging, no animal fiber lashes are deemed safe and cruelty-free by PETA.
Our Gossamer lashes are also built differently. They are so different, in fact, that they don’t fit neatly into any category that was previously available in the marketplace. Gossamer lashes are like a hybrid between cluster lashes and strip lashes.
The application of our Gossamer lashes also sets us apart.
Unlike strip lashes or cluster lashes, Gossamer lashes are applied using Underlash Technology™. Your Gossamer lashes are applied beneath your natural lashes, close to your waterline. This application method keeps your lashes feeling comfortable and is ultra-forgiving, even for newbies.
Our Lash Bonds
At Lashify, we knew we didn’t want to use harsh lash glues. The lash glue found in salons or in DIY kits is harsh on your natural lashes and can even irritate sensitive skin. They contain ingredients like formaldehyde and cyanoacrylates.
Our Lash Bonds work more like lash serums. They contain biotin and lavender to help support your natural lash growth, and they never fully cure. That means they don’t harden, making your natural lashes brittle and prone to breakage.
In fact, most of our users report their natural lashes look and feel healthier after using the Lashify System.
The best part about Lashify is that our lashes are made to last. While you can definitely remove them and reapply them whenever you want, you can wear them for up to ten days with proper care, even overnight.
We also offer tons of tutorials and how-to videos on our website to help you with application, wear, and aftercare. No matter what you need help with, we’ve got you covered.
Getting started with Lashify is easy. You just need a little control.
The Starter Kit On Everyone’s List
The Lashify Control Kit™ should be at the top of your must-have list this year. It contains everything you need for Gossamer lash application, including two sets of Gossamer lashes to help you begin building your lash wardrobe.
Every Control Kit comes with:
- Two sets of Gossamer lashes. You get the power to choose. Our Gossamer lashes are available in numerous lengths, volumes, and shapes. Pick the ones you love the most based on your style, eye shape, or mood.
- Fuse Control® Wand. Application is made easy with our ergonomically designed Fuse Control Wand. The Fuse Control Wand hugs the curve of your face and eyelid, making it easy to attach your Gossamer lashes perfectly. For smaller hands and faces, the Petit Curve Wand is best.
- One set of Wandoms®. Because our Bonds never fully cure, they become tacky during application. Covering your Fuse Control Wand with a protective Wandom helps you avoid any sticky situations.
- Whisper Light Bond™. Our most popular Bond, Whisper Light is available in clear and black. It’s powerful enough to keep your Gossamer lashes intact for up to 10 days but so gentle it won’t damage your natural lashes and is also safe for sensitive skin.
- Glass Finishing Coat. When you’re ready for your lashes to go the distance, try adding Glass Finishing Coat. With a few sweeps of Glass, your lashes are sealed in and protected from external stressors.
- Samples. Prepping your lashes for a full set of Gossamer lashes is easy when you use our Pre Cleanse Japanese Cleansing Water. It also doubles as a facial cleanser. Use Melt Away, our dual-phase, oil-based makeup remover, when you’re ready to remove your Gossamer lashes easily and without pulling or tugging.
Everything you need comes in one easy, convenient, and hard case to keep your tools and Gossamer lashes safe, so you never have to wonder where your lash tools are.
